Are you one of the many in Phuket who has to do a visa run and is looking for alternative to the usual Ranong and Malaysia routes? If you are, and you want to take in some different sights at the same time, AirAsia, Thailand’s largest low-cost carrier is the only airline to offer flights direct from Phuket to Udon Thani, which has great connectivity to Laos and is a perfect option for a visa run.
From Udon Thani you can take a short bus journey to the Lao capital, Vientiane, a quiet town located about 20km from the Thai-Laos Friendship Bridge and rich in cultural heritage. Whilst you’re there, eat good food, drink a beer next to the Mekong river, which houses more species of giant fish than any world river, and enjoy the relaxed pace and friendly personality of the Laos people and I’m sure you’ll be going back to renew your next Thai visa.
